Manufacturers always have conservative tunes on forced induction hence the easy power.
But 2500 for 200 Nm more is not too bad .

I think you get my point. Other than a tune, there are no mods Iím aware of to add that amount of power for $2500 or less. Especially without voiding a power train warranty or being illegal in 50 states and smelling like raw fuel due to tampering with emissions controls.

The OP and many others have good results with bootmod3, a tuning platform that voids the power train warranty on the car. The carbahn and dinan tunes include a separate power train warranty in the price and is why they seem expensive.

The problem is, EVERYONE does not know. Or else they think that if they have a really serious problem that Bmw will not know itís been tuned because theyíve taken off their JB4 or cleared their tune. Iíve been told by my service advisor, (who by the way has his car modded and has spun two crank hubs so far, one of which was covered under warranty) that for relatively minor stuff or the first time it happens you may get the dealership to cover it and they may or may not know that itís been modded . However if it goes to the corporate level and they look into it they can tell anything thatís been done no matter what anybody tells you.
